My family and I stayed here for two nights , ( family of 5 ) we really enjoyed our stay , we absolutely loved having the pool and lake couple steps away so we got to enjoy the best of both . Also loved the fact they have a kiddie pool an a spa . Very clean staff are friendly . We also hired a kayak for a hour but they let us have it for couple hours 😊 I would recommend this property to friends & family 😊

The room was clean and tidy. It was a little dated and of need of a refurbishment. We booked late and got the last available room so we were happy with what we got. The staff were very friendly and pointed out things to do in the area etc. A great stay thanks
